Out of the blue a close friend of my son texted me: in town from SD for a week. Remembered you like to play with Dead music. Want to get together and hang out? Well he actually said jam, but I'll let that slide. Anyhow, he's become a born-again head, and a bass player to boot. But since he's traveling he only has his uke and bass uke. I have no idea what this is like, my son sent this to me, but I get to hold it on Friday. :)

George was awesome.

"Hey, if you could have a drink with any of the Beatles, who would you choose?"

Hmmmm. Lets, see.

John? Nah, he'd just drone on about the social inequity rampant in the pub peanut industry. If I want incessant blathering, I'll go have one with WT.
Paul? Nope. He'd just sit there trying to sound smarter than he really is.
Ringo? Couldn't do it. He'd fall off the bar stool and get lost trying to get back up.
Has to be George. No question.

Double thumbs up for Jack counting time with his eyebrows.

I'm wondering if it's awesome or cheesy.
